Learn About the 12 Month Dubai Climate
Dubai climate is generally warm most of the year.
It's not so bad in the winter months, but summers are extremely hot.
And the high humidity levels just make it unbearable.
That said, the best time to plan a trip to Dubai is during the winter months.
To really enjoy the climate in Dubai, both indoors and out, try to go there between November and mid March. These are typically the best months to be in Dubai.
My sister’s wedding was in April and it was really HOT in Dubai at that time.
Even when I felt like doing quite a bit, the heat just tamed me down and I couldn’t get myself active enough to do it.
All you want to do when it’s that hot is sleeeep! I love sleeping :)
Weather.com & Other Weather SitesIf you go to weather.com, it will appear as if Dubai weather is the same all year long. I don’t think weather.com has caught up as well yet in terms of accurately presenting the weather in countries outside the US.
Either than or the fact that weather in Dubai rarely changes as abruptly as it does here in the US. Even if it rains, it will rain for just a bit. And even if it storms, it will storm for just a bit. I don’t think I’ve ever seen thunderstorm or sand storm warnings on weather.com for Dubai.
Maybe they have caught up now by the time you are reading this. They were behind when I wrote this discussion though :)
12 Month Progression in the Dubai ClimateBecause other resources are not really that reliable, here is my synopsis on the weather in Dubai. Dubai weather is not so bad early in the year. These months are typically nice and sunny with minimal rain.
Between late December and mid to late March you can expect the temperatures to hover around the 85 degree (Fahrenheit) range at most. You can expect 55 degrees as the low temperature during these months. Humidity isn’t too bad, though more than you might be used to if you are from the US.
This chart represents average temperature levels in Dubai throughout the year.
It can get really bad though sometimes. Days are longer and drier during these months as there is minimal to no rain fall. This is the climate of Dubai known to most of the world. Welcome to the desert :)
July, August and September are the warmest months of the year in Dubai. This is no different from most places around the world. Temperatures are normally in the 100 plus range during these months.
Days are long and dry as rainfall is minimal to none. But the good news again is that humidity levels stay lower than earlier in the year so the heat is not so bad on the skin.
This chart shows the amount of rainfall and sunshine as well throughout the year.
The humidity does rise to same levels like in January. You will see the most rainfall in Dubai around Christmas time in December. October and November are relatively “rainier” than the rest of the year as well but not quite as much as December.
Love Hate Relationship with Dubai WeatherWhere is Dubai has a lot to do with Dubai's climate.
I love Dubai but I really hate the heat and humidity sometimes. I know it will be a rough day when I step out of the house and my glasses fog up. The problem gets worst during days with excessive traffic and smog (wait a minute that is like everyday lol).
But like all good things, they all come with their fair share of downfalls. Dubai is no different. I still love it though!
